Cybersecurity is fast evolving, with criminals becoming smarter and attacks bolder. Your 1234 password, basic antivirus, and standard firewall are no match for the sophisticated tools and strategies hackers use.

What you need is an IT security expert who understands modern cyber threats. Someone who can help you navigate the dynamic landscape, so your business stays safe and compliant.

Why IT and Cyber Security Matters

Every week, we hear heart-wrenching stories about data breaches, identify thefts and ransomware attacks. You can’t afford to be sloppy with your cyber and IT security. A single attack can soil your reputation and drive you out of business.

While ransomware accounts for only 9.39% of cyber incidents, it remains the greatest threat to many enterprises. It’s easily downloaded and spread through your network, ultimately, locking you out of your files and systems. Hackers often demand up to 1 million dollars before they can send you an unlock key. Common perceptions include this doesn’t affect us or we don’t have the money. For a business with a small turnover, this might herald the beginning of the end. You need to protect your business against ransomware actively.

A Data breach is a business owner’s worst nightmare. Whether it’s accidental disclosure of emails to a third party or unauthorised access to data containing credit card details of your customers, the implications are huge and costly. Recovering from data breach or loss is often difficult and costly.

Under the Mandatory Data Breach Notification scheme, any business with an annual turnover of 3 million AUD has a legal obligation to notify insurers, law enforcement, and regulators as well as individuals and affected parties of a data breach. Also, they have to remedy the breach so no one can misuse data and up their security to ensure the breach doesn’t recur.

Cybercriminals usually exploit human weakness when planning attacks. Any employee with online access needs to know how to safeguard your networks and systems. Opening fake websites or clicking on malicious links can create backdoors for cybercriminals, jeopardising operations, exposing sensitive data, and damaging your reputation.

Staff need to know the various types of cyber threats, how best they can protect themselves, and the tools to respond to cyber incidents. Training usually covers password best practices, using encryption and two-factor authentication, software and device security, handling spam, and dealing with “social engineering” attacks.
